Launched in August, Quotezone’s bicycle insurance comparison service is believed to be one of the first of its type in the UK and enables cyclists to compare quotes in a matter of minutes, making it more likely that they will find the right cover at the right price.
In addition to equipment cover for theft and accidental damage, Cycleplan also offers public liability cover up to £5million, providing protection if a policy holder accidently injures another person or damages third party property whilst riding his or her bike. Personal accident cover is also available if riders suffer a serious injury or death as the result of a cycling accident.
More than 300,000 bicycles are stolen each year in the UK, according to data from the Office for National Statistics. Quotezone.co.uk’s founder Greg Wilson says: ‘Insurance is a sensible and cost-effective way to safeguard your bike. Cycleplan is a brand that has the interests of the UK’s cyclists at its very heart and the company’s commitment to protecting their personal wellbeing, their bikes and their cycling accessories is the reason it is one of the country’s leading providers of bicycle insurance.
‘We’re delighted Cycleplan has chosen to partner with Quotezone.co.uk’s new bicycle insurance aggregator and are confident that both the company and our millions of users will greatly benefit from this partnership.’
Welcoming the new partnership, Cycleplan’s MD John Woosey says: ‘We’ve chosen to partner with Quotezone as they share our aim to help customers get the right cover at the right price in just a few clicks. They offer a great service to cyclists looking for insurance and we know our ‘only pay for what you need’ tailored approach will appeal to Quotezone users.’
Cycleplan is part of Ripe Insurance, which offers specialist insurance to over 220,000 policyholders. Its brands include Insure4Sport, which has policies covering sports’ teams, coaches, players and personal trainers and extreme sports.
